Pallet Centerpiece

When I saw this DIY centerpiece on The Idea Room (love Amy!!) I knew it was going to be on my dining room table for Christmas.  Amy shares hers with some beautiful fall decor.. but i knew not to expect fall for me :)   But it was finished Sunday after Thanksgiving... so I'm rather impressed.  Props to my husband and his wicked nail gun skills.. thanks hun!

It was easy to find supplies for this.. there is a lot of new construction around our house... = Pallets!! So this is my first pallet project.. and just like spray paint, I'm addicted!  

Isn't it pretty?  I didn't even do anything to the wood.. just naturally weathered.

How excited am I to have my own  Crow Bar! Pulling apart the pallet was a stress reliever ;)
Matt used a nail gun (borrowed from a friend.. I wonder if he wants it back??) to nail a piece of ply wood to the bottom.

I had some fun spraying pine cones...
 the green is for something else ;)
The first Christmas decoration!!
 Free pallet. Free pine cones. Silver spray paint and Bulbs from Walmart.  ... $5 total.  sweeeet!

Yes, the table is a little plain... needs something else.  But I like the start!
